Knoxville area patients ask, are veneers durable enough to handle every day wear and tear?
A common cosmetic services offered through Knoxville’s Sequoyah Dental Arts is that of dental veneers. Dental veneers are restorative treatments made of porcelain that are commonly used for coverage of imperfections such as yellowed, broken, or misaligned teeth. These restorations are custom-fabricated for patients to match their existing natural teeth and are bonded over the top of them for a more permanent solution to cosmetic issues. Dr. Pablo Foncea has been using veneers for years when patients have permanent problems with the aesthetics of their smile.
At Sequoyah Dental Arts, we offer porcelain veneers because they are durable and beautiful. Porcelain is typically used in dental restorations as it looks very similar to natural tooth enamel. It is also extremely strong and can withstand the typical chewing and biting forces used to consume food. Other strong materials used in dentistry include metal, but these are often avoided because of their appearance.
Dr. Pablo Foncea recommends porcelain restorations such as veneers when patients want to rejuvenate their smile in an alternative manner. Veneers are simple. They are fabricated to cover imperfections and can last a decade or longer with proper care. These restorations provide a solution to many dental concerns and are custom-made for each individual patient.
Most patients are appropriate candidates for versatile solutions such as porcelain veneers. These do require patients to have a healthy smile free from decay and disease which can be determined during an initial visit. If patients do have areas of decay or disease present, they must address them first before they have their new cosmetic treatment performed. This can be done at Sequoyah Dental Arts, and teeth can be prepared for porcelain veneers during the same appointment to save time and energy for both patients and dentist.
